Day of music honours Crispy
12:00pm Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
THE seventh instalment of the Crispystock memorial music festival took place at The George in Andover in memory of the late Chris Vearncombe.
The festival celebrated the life of Andoverian ‘Crispy’, the former UK Air Guitar Champion, who died in a road accident in South Africa.
Local bands and artists performed throughout the day and into the evening, raising £667 for Headway, a charity that cares for head trauma victims.
Richie Towerton, part of the organising team, said: “It’s great that Crispy’s memory lives on through a fantastic music festival that enriches the town to which he came and called home.
“Thank you to everyone who has made the last seven years all so worthwhile.
“We would like to say a huge thank you to Steve and all of the staff at The George for donating the venue and Nigel and the team at Mail Boxes for their continued support.
“Also to Jean and James Vearncombe and family as well as Donna, Jimmy and their family as well.”
Jean and James Vearncombe said: “It was a great Crispystock at the George with a great line-up.
“It makes us very proud to see so many of Crispy’s friends attend, with donations going to Headway.”
